Building Enclosures that meet the New Energy Codes Cost Effectively


This class focuses on practical, cost effective ways to reduce energy use and increase building durability in existing and new homes through efficient enclosure systems. New energy codes, green codes as well as green building programs put more scrutiny on energy efficiency than ever before. This class focuses on the performance characteristics of building enclosure approaches and technologies to create enclosures that manage thermal loads to ensure building durability as well as energy efficiency. This class will demonstrate methods to enhance and integrate control layers required to meet energy codes.
